That's the same Stock Rom that came with mine, All though very stable and smooth, couldn't get any GPS lock with it, so I Rooted, Installed CWM and flashed Tillaz's latest Custom Rom from 04/07 and phones running amazing and getting GPS locks quickly.

I can't say anything about the stock Rom because I didn't make or receive any calls on it before putting Tillaz's Rom on, Which has been fine making,receiving calls and fine on Skype too.

If it's working fine on Skype is it a mic problem?, can you try the sound recorder or maybe use the video recorder on the camera and see if that records sound at a decent level before going through the hassle of sending it back to China.

Hi guys,

 

I am getting my Vowney today and I have a questions:

1. I got it from merimobiles and chose to have them root the phone. Do I still need to root it like mentioned in this tutorial or can I just skip it and install CWM?

2. I only have a Win7 laptop and it seems that the tutorial is only for win8. What do i need to do to make it work. I've read somethign about drivers, but it's not clear to me.

3. Where can i download roms for the Vowney ?

 

Thanks in advance

Hello

 

My phone was working properly with the bluetooth headset until I installed CWM and ROM Miui.
Now with bluetooth headset, the headset functions are sent and received correctly, the sound of the headset is good but the microphone does not work.
Seems as if the microphone is always muted.
Already restore original ROM but is the same thing, no microphone. And tested with 3 diferent ones.
 
May be the CWM?
 
Anyone have any idea what is going on?
 
thank you
 
Best Regards

1st THANK YOU to the OPer for this great guide & the tons of followup by ensuing v5 buyers/sufferers ;)

 

for my future ref & perhaps the benefit of others here is what i faced/did/resolved:

 

i had stock vowney verne v5 (or wth its called).  you can install unclemobile & upgrade CWM & then follow OP; however, i foolishly flashed some other phone's CWM image.  phone still worked but couldnt reboot into any recovery mode at all now.  so i found this thread.

 

unfortunately, as many suffered, i couldnt get the flash tool to recognize my phone when i connected via USB while it was off.  it was a driver issue.

 

found an old win xp PC.

installed MS user mode driver (but not sure i really needed it b/c it didnt fix anything).

found & installed ALL MTK USB Drivers 2014 (http://www.4shared.com/rar/wrZccQgCba/ALL_MTK_USB_Driver_2014__v_084.html) & this was the key.

then plugged v5 in while on, installed all the drivers win xp asked for (kept pointing driver source to dirs in ALL MTK ea time until win xp accepted it).  at 1st set it up as HTC phone.  reinstalled driver as Mediatek smth.

then while v5 off, i connected it to win xp while watching the device manager.  in the few seconds it appears as unrecognized mediatek device (or whatever) i quickly right clicked & installed driver.

 

as soon as i did that & rebooted, everything worked just as OP says.  installed CWM, gapps, & my new ROM that i love! (http://www.needrom.com/mobile/vowney-v5-miui-2/).

 

all i wish now is that i could get android 4.4.x on there.

 

its a pretty damn good phone for the money except it does NOT work on Tmobile USA 3G or 4G or HSPA/HSPA+.  aka 2G fun!  frequency issues.  there are cheaper better china phones now w/ cases that fit & dont break soon as they touch gravel.

 

but eh.
